Contract? (Kyubey pumpkin from Halloween 2K13) by Gellert-Grindelwald
Contract? (Kyubey pumpkin from Halloween 2K13)
This is my pumpkin carving from last year, of Kyubey from Puella Magi Madoka Magica. I feel he came out way better than my Olivia pumpkin did, but I still hate how my lines are shaky. D:. This is the last 'special' pumpkin I did. This year, I did a pumpkin with a slime's face (the slimes from Dragon Quest). It's OK, but nothing fantastic.
Anyway, hope you enjoy this!

D:. I'm away a few months, and DA is suddenly Facebook. >_<;. WHY?!
Maison de Nuit by Gellert-Grindelwald
Maison de Nuit
Title is French for House of Night, just cause. ^^;.
Anyway, this is a fanart of Luka (the Vocaloid singer) that I've been working on for forever, lol. I came up with the idea back in 2011 (I randomly drew a picture of Luka wearing a Gothic Lolita dress), and finally drew it back in 2012. I tried to color it almost right away, but had issues with both GIMP crashing all the time, and with the coloring not coming out to my liking. So I let it sit for years. I updated GIMP not too long ago, and picked this up again earlier this month. This time, I tried the airbrush tool, and finally got it to look like I wanted it to. I finally finished today. ^^;;. This will likely be the last pic in GIMP I ever do, since FireAlpaca has the smooth lines I want AND the airbrush tool. ^^;;.
Anyway, I hope you guys think it came out OK. It's the first artwork I've done in forever that looks OK, and it's still 2 years old. D:. *needs to draw more stuff LOL*

Olivia pumpkin (from 2012) by Gellert-Grindelwald
Olivia pumpkin (from 2012)
I completely forgot to upload my pumpkins from the last few years. D:. That's really stupid of me.
Anyway, this pumpkin was from 2012, and was originally for a contest MapleStory was running. Since I didn't win, I think it's OK to post here. ^^;
Anyway, this pumpkin is of the MS character Olivia, who's almost a mascot for Halloween on MS, more or less. I spent forever carving this, but since it was my first pumpkin that wasn't a basic Jack-O-Lantern, the lines are jagged D:. It came out ok, I guess. I have another pumpkin (from last year), but I'll post that tomorrow. By the way, it did NOT light well. Which is why I posted the one from the daytime. >_<;. The details were lost in the lit version.
Loading...
I finally posted something that's not just a forum request. :). It took me forever to do, but I finally finished the Luka pic I had been working on. It took me forever because GIMP was initially refusing to behave. It originally kept crashing. And even when I could get it to work, it wasn't coming out how my older pics did. It just didn't look very good. Within the last month, I finally discovered the airbrush, and realized it was exactly what I had wanted. :).
Other than that, I have one more pic I'm working on. It's MapleStory related again, and is only a few months old. Unlike the Luka one.. >_<;.
There is one more I kind of like that I may scan (the art's old now, so I won't color it), but that's all. I've been really busy with forum requests and asks lately, so I haven't had time (and honestly, inspiration) for anything else. D:. I need to draw something else, but I don't have anything in mind. It's been like this for months. >_<;. I got one more big idea, then nothing. It's really annoying. Maybe I'll do something else Maple related (perhaps expand upon a sketch I did that I never posted here), dunno. I've been into Fate/Stay Night and Sword Art Online lately too, so maybe I'll do some Fate/Stay or SAO art. And there's almost no Pandora Hearts art of Lily, so that's a possibility too. Or maybe something original..
Anyway, I'm back now. For now, anyway. :). I do have one more pic to post (one regular, anyway. I also have some forum requests to post), but that'll be done another day.

Hi. :). I'm Filia Ryuuza, aka Reine Schelmisch/Elise Grimwald (it depends on the site). I've been drawing since I was 8 years old, but only started trying to learn using How-to books when I was 15. I still feel that I have a long way to go, however. ^^;. And it's been 10 years since I began drawing seriously. I joined Deviantart on July 4th, 2003 (on my old account), and have loved it here ever since. In addition to drawing, I make wallpapers occasionally. However, I can't post them here. :(.
As for influences on my art.. I don't particularly emulate one artist. I've tried to make a style that's my own. I do, however, really enjoy the works of Ken Akamatsu, Cocoa Fujiwara, Mayumi Azuma, Aoi Mizuki, Studio R.R.O.C. (I loved their Harry Potter doujinshi), Yuna Kagesaki, Arina Tanemura, Yana Toboso, Hiromi, Kara, and Yuzu Mizutani.
In addition to drawing, I also enjoy writing fiction. I'm working on a novel titled "Moonlit Night". It's REALLY slow going for me, though. I also write and draw my own webcomic, which can be seen either on here, or on the website below. I also enjoy video games, particularly RPGs. I also love anime and manga, and am a HUGE fan of the Harry Potter series (as can be seen by my username. XD.).
I'm going to leave some of my old profile info, as well. Thanks for reading this, and I hope that you enjoy my art.

Old profile info that I think is relevant:
Favourite genre of music: Alternative, Rock, Soft Rock, Pop (to an extent), Japanese music such as Vocaloid music
Favourite style of art: Anime, Soft celled CG, painted
Shell of choice: Magic Conch. XD
Favourite cartoon/anime/game character: Gaav, Fate Averruncus, Klaus(Nya), Asuna Kagurazaka, Jeanne, Lemina Ausa, The Warden, Brian Griffin, Yuki Cross (As Cross, not Kuran), Megurine Luka (does she count?), Makoto Sawatari, Neinheart, Fang the Sniper, Grell Sutcliff, Ciel Phantomhive, Alice (Pandora Hearts), Vaughn (Harvest Moon), Pierre (Harvest Moon)
Personal Quote: "For the Greater Good"

It would be awesome if you did. :). I love seeing MapleStory cosplays. It's really a shame they're so rare. >_<;. Fortunately, you still have quite a bit of time to make it. Fortunately for me, too. ^^;. I only have a few of the things I need for my cosplay. :(.
And that's great to hear. :). I've been going for years too (this will be my 11th year). :). And yes. We do. XD. I would love for the gathering to become a reality. There's only been one other to my knowledge, and that wasn't at ACen. We need to remedy that. XD. I've already made a post about it on Tumblr, and have already gotten one other person that would be interested. Maybe a post on the main MapleStory forum or one of the fansites would work? I'll see what the rules are regarding that on those forums, and post there.
